Coasting for Corals

SeaWorld Orlando has opened the first surf coaster in the world and we’re honored to partner with them! This highly anticipated roller coaster both entertains and educates guests about the issues facing Florida’s Coral Reef.

Pipeline: The Surf Coaster was officially unveiled on May 27, 2023. Pipeline features an innovative surfboard-style seating arrangement, offering an exhilarating and immersive experience that simulates riding the waves, with riders zooming through twists, turns, and inversions. While waiting in line, guests are greeted by colorful signage explaining stony coral tissue loss disease and how our Foundation, FWC, and others are working to preserve and restore our reef.

“We are proud to partner with SeaWorld in our shared conservation mission to help raise
awareness of the importance of protecting the Florida’s coral reef, which is the only coral
reef system in the continental United States,” said Fish & Wildlife Foundation of Florida
President & CEO Andrew Walker. “SeaWorld has been a trusted partner in conservation for
many years and we are thrilled to continue this collaboration with Pipeline.”

This unique partnership demonstrates our shared commitment to marine conservation, sustainability, and public outreach. By combining thrilling entertainment with education, we hope to inspire visitors to become conservation champions!
